What is PRP THerapy for Hair Loss?
Hair loss is a significant concern for many men and women, whether it is caused by genetics, age, hormones, or health conditions. With recent advances in research in the hair restoration field, new treatments have been developed to help combat the problem. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a premier nonsurgical procedure with promising results in slowing down, stopping, and reversing baldness in patients with alopecia areata, thinning eyebrows, and other hair loss conditions. Dr. Myriam Yokana of Modern Day MedSpa provides this revolutionary treatment in Franklin Park, IL. By blending a strong solution of hair growth factors and bioactive proteins, Dr. Yokana can help strengthen the function of your hair follicles, resulting in thicker, longer, healthier locks.
"I got my lips done here and they look amazing!! I've had filler before, but it has never looked this natural, the doctor really knows what she is doing. She told me what lip shape would go with my face. I'll definitely be going back!"- D.R. / Google / Apr 16, 2021

"Great place to get cool sculpting. The technician Isela was friendly and knowledgeable. My friend recommended this place because of the great promotions and the results. After going in for 2 sessions I noticed a great reduction in the treated areas. I highly recommend this place for laser hair removal as well. I noticed results straight away and I will definitely be going back to get more treatments. Not to mention, their Covid-19 regulations make appointments feel safe during these times. Such a clean and professional environment."- H.L. / Google / Nov 16, 2020

Our PRP for Hair Loss Technique
As a nonsurgical procedure, PRP therapy is a short, one-hour, in-office visit. The process starts with obtaining a small amount of your blood and placing it in a specialized machine, which circulates the blood at high speed to separate your platelets from your remaining blood components. Next, a local anesthetic will be administered to your scalp, and the concentrated platelet-rich plasma is reintroduced into regions of your scalp that are thinning or bald. Finally, microneedling is performed on the scalp to create micro-channels in the skin, which activates the PRP and enables it to penetrate deep into the skin. This nonsurgical approach to hair loss management includes an initial treatment followed by maintenance therapies at least once per year. As PRP is not a permanent alternative for hair loss, follow-up sessions are highly recommended. Patients with symptoms caught early tend to experience the most favorable results. It's very important to note that PRP doesn't grow new hair follicles in areas where you're already bald, but it can be effective at strengthening hair follicles that are beginning to shut down.
